Audiologic delivers high-tech immersive sound system for Evolution, Yorkshire Wildlife Park’s new restaurant with a difference

Audiologic has announced its collaboration with Technically Creative, to deliver a unique immersive experience at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

The recently launched ‘Evolution’ restaurant at Yorkshire Wildlife Park offers a uniquely immersive experience, with diners embarking on a journey to a mysterious land where Jurassic Island meets the fantasy world of caves and mythical dragons, complete with sound, animatronics and stunning visual effects. The restaurant is part of the new retail and gaming ‘hub’, expanding the park’s traditional offering.

To achieve this exceptional experience, the audio brief called for speakers that were discreet enough to be able to conceal themselves as much as possible in the stage works, while producing enough volume in high quality to fill the space, with a relatively limited number of between them. them. . With multiple seating areas providing different background soundscapes, this presented an additional challenge.

Audiologic specified a single system with QSC Core 110f processor and Q-SYS UCI iPad control, coupled with 14 Genelec IP 4420A loudspeakers for background music and sound effects and six Alto series PA loudspeakers TS, distributed over the areas of the stage. James Voakes, Senior AV Engineer, Technically Creative comments, “The system provides a high-quality experience for diners, and the on-board speaker management features allowed modifications to be made to suit the environment, such as turn off the LEDs on the front of the speakers to keep them hidden, as well as shape the built-in equalizer to their specific needs. The Core processor has also been upgraded to expand storage for downloading background music. The client and everyone at Technically Creative are very happy with what we were able to achieve on this project.

Ben Spurgeon, Senior Technical Director, Audiologic, concludes: “We are truly delighted to have been able to work with Technically Creative to deliver an immersive experience on this project. The brief was the perfect opportunity to showcase the latest Genelec PoE/Dante speakers and integrate them into the Q-SYS ecosystem. Having the opportunity to demo the Genelec 4400 range helped us prove the possibilities of these brilliant loudspeakers, and by opting for a fully networked solution, control, flexibility and ease of use came together so transparent.
